Notes

Notes:
Slight cut at the beginnning of Alabama Getaway
1.25 second cut in He's Gone @ 7:27 probably corresponds to
a slightly longer (5 second?) tape flip.
Around & Around cut at 1:03
There was a 30-second gap on the source CD at 4:38 in
Minglewood, to 5:08. In preparing this version the silent gap
was removed. It is likely that this corresponds to a 30 second
dropout on the Master Reel.

There is already a version of this show circulating
as SB>MC>C>DAT>CD. It was posted to abgd around 12/24/01.
This version is a definite upgrade, although it's easier to see
in terms of frequency analysis, than audibly. It's worth noting
that all the cuts are identical to the 2 versions - ie the 30
seconds in Minglewood, the Easy To Love You and Alabama Getaway
cuts at the start of those tracks, the cut in He's Gone and the
premature ending to A&A. In Cool Edit I could see the frequencies
drop off on the 12/24/01 version around 16kHz-ish. Here they are
flat all the up to 22kHz.
One may infer from this that they share a common source, and that
the cuts are either inherent to the Master Reel or Dick's cassette.
(The 12/24/01 abgd version might therefore be MR>Dick's cass>C>
DAT>CD).

Editing was restricted to:
(1). Removing the 30-second silent section from Minglewood
(2). Tidying the overlap between the end of disc #2 and the
start of disc #3. On the source discs, there was a tiny bit
too much overlap. On the finalised new version, a tiny section
was trimmed from the start of d3t01. d2t08 is a fade-out of the
first 26 seconds of Space (d3t01). Rejoining Drums>Space
*seamlessly* is simply a matter of omitting d2t08.

Subject: Hot as a pistol but cool inside...
Start of the show was kinda shaky, but by the time they began playing Go To Heaven songs they really picked up! Second set starts strong and keeps it up! The jam out of Estimated into He's Gone is sweet! And so is the jam out of that, god damn! From there on out it gets that super cool with a great Drums and some far out sounds Brent brought to the band at the time. Super heavy Other One and a rockin' Wharf Rat!

I've been really diggin' these Fall '79 shows. October throughout the New Year, it's all fuckin' sweet!

Subject: First (but certainly not last,) Alabama Getaway!
This show was played just on the heels of the now, historic, Cape Cod, MA shows. And the boys didn't disappoint. Another great performance. Surprise open with the New & Improved Minglewood Blues. Jamming all over stuff like Lost Sailor/Saint. Great Alabama Getaway, (pre-synth, though the recording for the forgetful Go to Heaven album was done over the previous summer.) Revival of Greatest Story Ever Told and a beautifully melodic intro and outro to He's Gone after a sublime slice of Estimated. Brent's keyboard solo following the final verse just played so sweetly with Phil's bass before finally yeilding to Jerry's licks. And that cool dirge-like riff coming out of the drums was one to remember.
This date was marked by the taking of US hostages in Iran, and the end of Jimmy Carter's presidency. But I'll rememember it for the ride I got in Stella Blue and the sweet songs that made me feel like I'd 'get up and fly away'. We loved each other,didn't we, bros? Jester

Subject: one of my very first shows
thank you for this lovely clean recording of it. I remember I was tickled to hear Ship of Fools and He's Gone, two of the favorites in my very limited knowledge of GD music.
